FASHION FRIDAY: Returned from China, Meg & Dee

Meg & Dee are finally back from China!  And Jax & I are up visiting them!

Hopefully you’ll see much more of us after this week.  The transition for all of us (their return and our travel up north) has resulted in us being a little lax in our postings.

Here are some pics of Meg and Dee.

Hope you have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash


FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Roosevelt Murals


PART II Of Roosevelt Murals



We headed back down to Roosevelt to take some more shots with the murals down in that area.  Since it’s one of the art districts in Phoenix, the murals come and go before you know it sometimes.  So you really have to catch them quick.  I absolutely love this southwestern inspired one, which I felt would be perfect for some southwestern inspired accessories.

I just go these earrings from one of our sponsors!  Persophone’s Place!  I absolutely love them.  They are supper long and beaded.  They go with just about everything I own . . . I have fairly simple outfits and when you have such a cool pair of statement piece earrings, sometimes it’s great to tone down the other parts of your outfit (in my opinion).  She’s has shorter versions if you prefer!

Unfortunately, I rarely get to wear them right now . . . Jax LOVES it when I wear dangly earrings.  And my ears LOVE it when he pulls them too (insert dripping sarcasm here)!  I get to wear them at least once a week when I’m working and he’s hanging out with his dad on his day off.

This dinosaur mural is across the way from the southwestern one.  Its so cute!  Feels really funky and I believe it’s spray painted on.

By this time, jax was starting to loose it and get super squirmy.  He wants to be off running around (although he hasn’t quite figured out the walking/running part, but he can sure book it in a crawl).

I’m wearing forever21 top and tank (man – forever21 is SO affordable, $5 tank tops), H&M pants, Target ballet flats in a cool bright colored southwestern pattern, thrifted jewelry, and you can get my fantastic earring here – at Persephone’s Place.

on jax: thrifted Jack & Jill gray linen shorts, and thrifted vintage yellow polo shirt.

hope you enjoyed Fashion Friday!  check out the cool murals around Phoenix when your in town.

have a great weekend! ash

fashion fridays: Ash & Jax – South Mtn PHX


This shoot fell on a day we ran errands, so being comfortable was one of my main concerns.

We went to Roosevelt Row in Downtown PHX.  This is where they hold FIRST FRIDAY A.R.T.S. MARKET ( as the name implies – its the first friday of every month) for the Indie Art Scene.

They recently added some new murals to the area, which we’ll showcase in a number of Fashion Fridays.  There were too many to do in one and we didn’t think it would do them justice by doing all of them at once!  There are a few pretty funny pics (well at least two that are LAUGH-OUT-LOUD type photos, so don’t be shy, go ahead and laugh out loud if you think Jax and I look funny – or just me!  Laughing is good for the soul).

Jax was definitely starting to feel the – “I don’t get what’s going on and I really don’t care” – bug!!  Jax’s face – PRICELESS.

Such a great mural!  So in the style of Shel Silverstein – whimsical, magical, and yet funky!

and  . . .

yes…remember at the beginning I said you would LAUGH-OUT-LOUD . . . well if you didn’t after THAT picture than I guess I can’t make you laugh.  I thought it was pretty funny.  The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree in this picture!

Jax wasn’t really into this ONE . . . he’s so squirmy now and just wants to be on his own, moving about and crawling.  I think you can kind of see it in ALL of these pictures.

another silly grin from me, but who wouldn’t grin like this with a son like mine (i’m sure this is how all parents feel . . . especially when your son is trying to touch a big round cacti!).

enjoy! and have a great weekend! ash

fashion fridays: Ash & Jax – South Mtn PHX


I did a bit of stylized editing, sorry if the coloring is annoying, but I had fun trying to make them look a little vintagey…did it work?

We went up to the top of South Mountain Park Reserve in Phoenix, which “is the largest municipal park in the country”.  It’s beautiful if you are the type of desert rat that appreciates the beauty of the desert in all it’s glory, bright ambiance, and scorching, leather built in air  . . . I am a desert rat.

Phoenix behind us with all of it’s smog filled glory . . .

I have quite the silly grin here.  Jaxon can you say . . . “mommy, you’re a dork sometimes” :) !

are we born desert rats…I think jax was by default.

enjoy! and have a great weekend! ash

ps... thanks again to Brynn with movement restoration massage!

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Scottsdale Civic Center


This week we went to Tempe Town Lake.  It’s pretty, but next time we’ll go when it’s a little warmer and perhaps greener!  We are definitely going casual these days.  I think it’s hard not with a child!

I’m wearing gray skinny jeans from H&M (thrifted at Buffalo Exchange), but they are definately starting to get a little baggy as I continue to loose my baby weight!  I didn’t realize they were sort of baggy (maybe they only look that way to me).  I love mixing styles – the dolman sleeve, tribal shirt (thrited at Buffalo Exchange)  with funky 70’s inspired blue earrings.  I also like combining colors that don’t necessarily match, different hues of blues, etc.  And black ballet flats from Target.

Does it work?  I hope so!  Otherwise I’m sure I look pretty silly right now!  LOL.

Jaxon’s wearing a cute grey and white striped shirt from Carters, earth green Gap jeans (that have an elastic waste band – the waistband is actually elastic – not the kind where the elastic is sewn into it causing bunching – I think they’re genius).  On Me: Georgia O’Keeffe inspired ring (the off white rose one), and copper wire ring (thrifted).

ENJOY! and have a great weekend!

thanks to our photographer - my sister Brynn (her business - movement restoration - I do all of the editing and touch-ups).

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax PHX Art


We went to the Phoenix Art Museum this week (well just outside because they had a cool dinosaur sculpture by Sui Jianguo out front – click the link to read more about the sculpture).  So here are the pics from the shoot!

I don’t know where your little ones are in their developmental stages, but Jax is crawling on all fours now!  He’s a maniac, he never sits still anymore.  It’s amazing to see.

Sorry my posts are so short lately!  Taking care of a 9 month old, taking 3 classes, and making onesies for our shop is a little time consuming.  Meg is transitioning from US to China and will be here a little more often soon (she did Wednesday Wants yesterday :)).  Our postings should get more regular pretty soon as we figure out our schedules.
ENJOY! and have a great weekend!
PS: here’s a pic of jax, me, and our photographer – Brynn, my sis, with Movement Restoration!
i love that even the dinosaur is smiling in this pic!
